Good Mental Health Begins Here
Good mental health is more than just the absence of mental illness. It means you are in a state of wellbeing where you feel good and function well in the world.
Good mental health is when you can cope with the normal stresses of life.
Trying to determine if a person is struggling with mental health is not always easy. Here are a few symptoms that may help you recognize that you are struggling with good mental health: Excessive worrying or fear, feeling excessively sad, extreme mood changes, strong feelings of irritability or anger, avoiding friends or social activities, changes in eating habits, inability to carry out daily activities, changes in school performance, nightmares.
